    What to do in Pinklao?

    Just moved here and am wondering what all options I have? Of course I'm near Central but that's a bit of a let off. Have a bar near me called 'The Overstay' that is okay to pop in for a beer but it's full of backpackers so there is not much socializing (since I'm not staying there).

    No interest in going to KSR.

    Looking for anything. Standard pubs, bars, restaurants. Nightclubs. Anything to get me out of my condo for a night without having to spend all the time and money getting back and forth to the city.

    Meh. I like it all right. Cheap. Relatively quiet and calm. Easy to navigate.

    Used to be a great mor lum club in pinklao near the bridge. Isaan Tur Tur.
    Great party place on a sat night. Ask around. Sure an Isaan taxi or motosi driver knows the place.

    Yes and nobody cares if you like the ladyboys, we're quite a liberal bunch here, with the exception of a few Neanderthals.

    Move somewhere else. I think Terry 57 has a tent in Lumpini Park next to the big lizzards and that noodle lady with 5 o'clock shadow that will eat your bum bag. Good value at half the price!............

    By the way, from where you are to sukhamvit for example is, dunno 150 baht by taxi.

    Go in the evening, probably not going to take more than 20 minutes.

    Yeah coming home late at night is never a big deal, but heading out for the evening around 6 - 7 PM (eat dinner around Suk and then bars & whatever else) is usually a huge hassle.

    Going anywhere on weekend afternoons is usually difficult as well.

    If you wander around the Pra Artit road and adjoining soi's you will find some Thai orientated pubs occupied by drop dead gorgeous Thai girls, a cracking local band playing and no stinky arse backpackers.

    It's a funny area that one, one don't need to venture far to lose the Backpackers but you need to be in the Know or be prepared to put in some decent yards hunting these places out.

    Keep looking.

    Cool. I see a lot of uni students around here so I figured there must be somewhere to hang out. I'm only 23 so I've been trying to find something catering towards that age group. Speak Thai pretty fluently so that's no problem. I'll check these areas out this weekend I believe.

    These Uni Students Party all night long, I've seen some of these girls being pored into Taxi's early morning.

    Some really beautiful girls amongst them. You won't have to go to far to find the Thai orientated pubs, plenty on the Pra Artit rammed full with Thai's only.

    Stinky arse Backpackers mainly inhabit khao-San and Rambuttri.

    If you can speak Thai and are only 23 you will be set like a dinner.

    Enjoy.

    My kind of night then. Used to live in Phetchabun province so I'm all too familiar with nights like this.

    with your planned forays into the pinklao nightlife area , can we expect some reports and reviews with google earth and streetview screen grabs ?

    they are always useful for the forum

    Sure thing. Gladly share my findings, though judging from a few of the responses here it doesn't seem like Pinklao is high up on anyone's radar.
